Dubrovnik, Croatia

Now I have come back from a 3 week vacation in croatia. Me and my wife try to go there every year and the reason we go there is that we have a summer house there. It is 5o km from Dubrovnik and on a peninsula called Peljesac also known for its fine wines.
We live near Ston which is famous for its wall that runs from Ston over the mountain to Mali Ston. The wall is called the "European Chinese Wall" and said to be the second longest wall in the world.
But Ston is not only known for the wall there are also salt ponds from the 1300s and they still use salt from there. The salt from Ston and Pag is the purest from the Mediterranean Sea.
During the three weeks we also did do some job on the house, we are not quite ready yet but it is approaching. But we were out on excursions as well, we went to Dubrovnik one evening and took the cable car up to the mountain which is just above.
From there it was fantastic views over Dubrovnik and after sunset we went down to Old Town took an ice cream or 2 ;) and went home. I will be blogging more from our holiday in croatia the coming days. But this time, only images from Dubrovnik;)
